Hello Parents and Families

Our first three days of school are in the books and they were terrific. I know you may be thinking, “Well he has to say that.” but I don’t and I tell you the first three days were genuinely terrific. The kids have been very well behaved, helpful to one another, courteous to one another and staff and just a pleasure to have back in the building. A school is just another building…until the kids arrive, then it’s true purpose shines. North Pole Middle School faculty is thankful you have chosen to send your kids back to in person learning.

School Start Times and Availability

Our new school start and end times for students are 7:50 a.m. to 2:20 p.m.

Students can be dropped off in the morning at 7:00 a.m. at which time doors will be opened.

Students should plan on leaving the school by 2:35 p.m. unless they are in an after school activity sponsored by school staff.


If your student needs to ride the bus to or from school to get home please be sure to register for a stop. The following link will take you to the School District webpage to register your student for transportation and find additional information regarding mask expectations while on the bus.
